War Movies
As George Patton said, compared to war, all other human activities fade to insignificance.  Well, maybe not completely, but battle brings out the best and worst of men and women.  War movies are in most cases all action.  There are some really good old movies, but, as in other genres, new techniques have made them more accurate and true to life.  Only have movies I have seen on this list.
